**picture coming after my next baking day!**
Usually, I’m calling my grandmother and asking for her recipes…now she is asking for one of mine! Well, Grammy…here it is 🙂
Traditional White Bread
(adapted from Heather’s recipe for Traditional White Bread)
For Kitchen Aid Mixer:
- 6 cups flour
- 3 Tablespoons honey
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
- 2 1/4 cup warm water
Mix yeast & water in small bowl ; mix to dissolve yeast
Add 3 cups flour, sugar, salt, oil & yeast water to mixer bowl. Using regular mixing paddle, mix for about 1 minute. Mix in enough flour to make dough easy to handle (about 1 1/2 cups).
Change to dough hook, add remaining flour, and run mixer on Speed 2 for 10 minutes. Add more water (1 tablespoon at a time) if dough seems too stiff.* Turn into a greased bowl, cover and rise until doubled.
Punch down dough and divide in half. Shape into loaves and place in greased pans. Let rise until doubled.
Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes. Turn out immediately onto cooling rack. For a softer crust, lightly brush with melted butter while it’s still hot.
*Normally, recipes tell you the dough shouldn’t be sticky. I have had the best results when the dough is slightly sticky after the kneading cycle.
Good Luck! If you try different variations of flour, sweeteners or mixers let me know! You can also use this recipe for rolls and sticky buns.
